PIMPROV
Direct from Chicago!


You’ve seen the flashy suits and jewelry so bright that a blind man can see it shining. Now ask yourself “who is more entertaining than a pimp?” Pimprov revolves around four pimps who took improv classes...on accident. The group's lack of political correctness and outrageous costumes are only part of the reason they're growing in popularity. The other reason is they're really funny!


Now Magazine Toronto calls them “Ho’larious”
The Chicago Tribune says “Politically incorrect and funny.”
The Los Angeles Times says “not your traditional improv”
Charleston City Paper “Pimprov has funny going on before they even open their mouths”

We have two shows on January 31st.
Doors open at 6:00 and show at 7:00
Doors open at 8:45 and show at 9:30.
Tickets are $12 per person in advance and $15 at the door.
